Iberostar Cancun

On my recent trip to Mexico, I wanted to get back to where my love of Mexico started, so I stayed in Cancun at Iberostar Cancun.

In the midst of Mexico's leading destination, the IBEROSTAR Cancún Hotel runs along the powdery beaches and pristine turquoise waters of the Caribbean.


It really is a hotel welcoming all. I travelled as a group with friends and my family, but there were couples, families, singles and even a bachelor party!

This Cancún resort features an array of services and amenities to meet the needs of any Cancún vacation.

The hotel itself has a great presence when you drive up. It is a beautiful high- rise, set right on the beach.  When we pulled up, my friend’s son turned to her and said “mom the Jersey shore has nothing on this place!” You check-in to a beautiful lobby and the “heart” of the hotel is the lobby bar – Las Palmas. It was always buzzing, day or night. The elevators and restaurants and even the convention center are all off of this lobby bar.  We found ourselves starting out here or often meeting friends here.

The rooms at Iberostar Cancun are nice and clean with more than plenty of space for a family of 3. They had a fridge in the room and our room had a great view of the ocean and even a balcony.

 The highlights of this hotel for me were:

The beachfront IBEROSTAR Cancún stands with theatrical appeal below the cerulean sky and has been recognized with awards and accolades for over 10 years and it also was recently awarded the AAA Four Diamond Award.

1 – The pools!  I love a good resort pool as that is where I spend most of my time. Iberostar Cancun did not disappoint. There were 7 amazing pools cascading one into the other ending at the infinity pool at the beach – beautiful!

2 – Super FUN pool bar. Around 3 PM every day, resort guests would all seem to migrate there after a day on the beach, golfing or at an excursion.  People mingled, the staff interacted with everyone and it was a lively fun place to meet people.

3 – The food. There was such a variety of restaurants!  I had no complaints. I tend to like the buffets in resort.  This way I am not on a schedule and can eat when I please and I can try different things.  The main buffet for breakfast, lunch and dinner was really good.  At breakfast they made fresh donuts in front of you! They also had a make-your-own omelet stations. The food was similar each night for dinner, with different stations so you could decide what you wanted – make your own pizza and pasta, fresh fish, steak, fajitas and shrimp could all be found for dinner each night.

4 – Space to roam. When we stayed there, the resort was quite full. However, there was plenty of space wherever we went. We never had to wait for a table to eat or for a drink.  There was always a beach chair or cabana to be found.   I loved this!

5 – The nightly shows. They were a lot of fun and a great way for us to start out each evening.

  1. Hi Virginia. Thanks for reading and taking the time to comment. You are right most of my blogs are positive as I have had overwhelmingly great experiences when I travel. I do try and focus on what makes a resort or destination special or unique. I have written a few that feature things to watch out for on vacation or pay special attention to. But I’ll keep your comments in mind during future blogs. I hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend.

  2. Hi–I do not work for Apple but stayed at the same resort– we LOVED it–yes I am a travel agent so I do get to experience some great places–but 7 pools-a teen club–a water park for kids-an awesome beach- it looks like a huge property but really was easy to get around– food was good–service was great and we had a blast– we went w/out kids –there really was nothing bad to say– other companies also sell the Iberostar properties- not just Apple- Suzie

  3. There is a growing interest in the many benefits of party tee shirt, and Bachelor party tee shirts are a way for you to enjoy these advantages at home. Since the more expensive units can do basically everything, you don’t even need the services of a party tee shirt therapist.:
